Should I read the following book

Essence of Decision: Explaining the Cuban Missile Crisis
by Graham T. Allison , Philip Zelikow

I don't know it. But I do recommend you read Thirteen Days by RFK, an insider account of the Cuban missile crisis.

I don't like the book because the section on rational choice is very outdated and the criticisms are meaningless. The parts on bureaucratic politics and group-think are decent, though.
